The Arts and Sciences Graduate Student Organization (A&S GSO) is an official University student organization that advocates the interests and concerns of the graduate students of the Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences. The A&S GSO provides the primary avenue of communications between graduate students and the administration as well as other University entities. The A&S GSO is also responsible for dispersing 50 percent of the student activity fees graduate students pay each semester.

With the activity fees, the A&S GSO sponsors events such as Happy Hours, the Grad Expo, and travel grants to support students presenting research at conferences. They also honor outstanding graduate student teaching by presenting the Elizabeth Baranger Excellence in Teaching Awards.

Any A&S graduate student is welcome to attend and participate in any of the monthly meetings of the A&S GSO, but only a department's official representative may cast a vote at such a meeting. The A&S GSO also elects its own officers, and representatives to various other University organizations.

The Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG) is the governing body for all graduate and professional students at the University of Pittsburgh. GPSG administers half of the graduate student activity fee to provide programming and services to all graduate and professional students, including a popular travel grant program for attending and presenting at conferences, free legal services, and supplemental funds for graduate student organizations. The social programming that GPSG provides throughout the year includes networking, cultural, and local sporting events.

Most importantly, GPSG connects graduate students to Pitt's administrators through graduate student representation on many University committees. These representatives advocate and make recommendations regarding students to the Office of the Provost, University Senate, Board of Trustees, and other University-wide committees.

GPSG represents the concerns of all graduate and professional students, so please contact them if you have an issue they can help with. Graduate and professional students can get involved with the GPSG by attending their monthly assembly meetings or visiting their offce in William Pitt Union.
